Hitch Climber Pulley




The Hitch Climber is the single most popular pulley for organizing a hitch system, thanks to the 3 holes which streamline the system, and open up additional tie-in options for advanced uses.

The Hitch Climber pulley has many uses! It can be used for slack tending, generating mechanical advantage for rescue and gear hauling, not to mention improving work positioning systems. See the Hitch Climber's Guide PDF for more ideas. Smooth contour and rounded edges are easy on rope and carabiners alike.

DRT + this pulley is a perfect marriage

by Miko

DMM Hitch Climber Pulley. I can't imagine climbing DRT w/out this, or their newer version. Using a simple self-tending hitch cfg of eye-2-eye prusik & tail on the running end, and an accessory cord 3-coil prusik/micro biner on my working end, i clip the micro 'biner to the middle attach point on this pulley, and it's self-tending bliss. If you climb DRT you NEED this, or it's newer sibling. Honestly, no need to spend xtra for the latest one. This one is excellent as well.
